Bout of Books Readathon

I came across this readathon today as I was finally getting to read some blogs.  My oldest daughter took my littliest one to Key Lime Cove today (where she works) to go swimming.  This was his last week of summer vacation and it seems like we have been trying to squeeze everything in!  So, I am still behind on my reviews, my reading, etc - so when I saw this readathon, I thought - what better way to spend the first week of school?  I have some other news regarding next week - but since it is not "official" yet I don't want to jinx it by posting here!

Anyway - here is some info regarding the Bout of Books Readathon that runs from Aug 22 to Aug 28. It is being hosted at On a Book Bender by Amanda.

  • Read as much as you can whenever you can between 12:00am 8/22 and 11:59pm 8/28 (your time zone).

  • There is no pressure! Participate even if you can only spare a day or two, a few hours, or even just a few minutes. Use it an excuse to read. Whatever works for you. If you plan to read at all between 8/22 and 8/28, sign up!

  • Head on over to On a Book Bender to sign up and see about the challenges, giveaways and places you can post your progress.

    You can find the official Bout of Books schedule here.  Hope to see ya around next week!  Happy reading!
